I added an LDAP server for my school, and added my friends (via drag and drop)
to my personal address book in Thunderbird. I added 14 of them, and now when I
go into the personal address book and I click on an Address card the information
seems to be constantly reloading (like it's in some sort of infinite loop). This
happens no matter which entry I click on. If I delete one entry (it doesn't
matter which one) the address book will behave properly. If I re-add any entry
it does the same thing over again. Creepy. It only lets me have 13 entries in
the PAB? If I try to add more than 14, the address book and hence thunderbird
crashes on me. If I can manage to add another entry and have 15, then everything
seems peachy again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on Address Book
2. Click on Personal Address Book
3. Click on an Address card

Actual Results:  
The address card seems to be reloading infinitely.

Expected Results:  
Shown the results without reloading infinitely.

This bug has been fixed, but I don't remember exactly when.
Which build are you using? (0.6 doesn't yet exist ;)
I suggest trying the latest 0.3 build.
